An interesting read
on 12 September 2016
I was on holiday and saw Jasvinder Sanghere on a local news channel doing an interview, so when I saw this book, because her interview was interesting, I bought it. I was not disappointed.
Jasvinder was 16 when she ran away from home because her parents had arranged a marriage for her. One of her sisters ends up marrying the man Jasvinder was supposed to marry.
Some 30 years later this book covers her journey to India where she finds family who she didn't know about, and that she hadn't brought shame on the family as she was led to believe.
If you've never visited India, there are some really good descriptions of villages, the Golden Temple and others.
A worthy ready to see how other cultures live.
